Sheep in Alabama. Yup, it is possible.

    I guess I associate sheep with English pastures but they did originate in Mesopotamia so evidently are not averse to living in hot places 😉

      They did originate to Mesopotamia?! I knew of sheep in Vermont & thought it would be the perfect place to raise them. wooly in winter & shaved in summer. But here they were wooly, but a friend told me that the wool acts as an insulator to both heat & cold. Astonishing…Alabama is too damn hot for me & my husky. 🙂 ~amy

        Yes, I could imagine Vermont being a good place to be a sheep – weatherwise 😉 Indeed that is true about wool – its hygroscopic properties allow it to match the temperature of the wearer.

        I often craft in wool Amy and I have done a bit of research into the properties of wool in the past … so that is how I came to learn this info.

        Oh, that makes sense. When i grow up, i want to move back to Vermont & raise sheep, the breed that has a black face/legs with that beautiful carmel colored wool. Does that sound like a dream life to you? I would love it. I wish, wish, wish that could come true. Maybe another life? Thank you for telling me how you knew so much, Peggie. ~amy
